The accident must have happened at the end of last year. The woman – the sixth to accuse Governor Cuomo of sexual harassment or misconduct – says she has been summoned to the governor’s residence in Albany, New York, in a labor case.
No details have been revealed about what happened, but the woman is said to have said that Cuomo touched her inappropriately. The woman did not report the incident herself, but when a department official found out what should have happened, the matter was further reported.
– All charges that we are aware of, directly or indirectly, go to the prosecutor-appointed investigators, says Como actress Beth Garvey.
The chief prosecutor is the state attorney general Letitia James, who has appointed to investigate the allegations against the governor.
Komo: I didn’t touch anyone
Soon after the new allegations surfaced, the governor himself spoke to several reporters. He said he did not know what was going on about him, but he assured that he had never taken anyone inappropriately. Previously, however, he apologized if he made women feel uncomfortable through gross and sometimes personal jokes.
Cuomo’s crisis began in January when he was exposed to trying to cover up the death toll at a New York retirement home during the pandemic. The allegations of bullying and sexual harassment continued. Lindsay Boylan, the first woman to accuse Cuomo of sexual harassment, responds to a Times Union article.
The new allegations do not appear to diminish demands that Democrat Cuomo leave office – demands that have come from both Democrats and Republicans. Including Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart’s cousins. Deputy Governor Kathy Hochol, who will take over if Cuomo is forced out, says she has confidence in the investigation.
– I am sure everyone’s voices will be heard and taken seriously. Kathy Hushul says in a statement that New Yorkers should feel confident that they will discover all the facts through an investigation.
